This was a highlight of our recent trip through the southeast. The history and beauty of this park was stellar. Great biking trails and a museum that entertained our teenage boys even. This park is very well kept and gated. You can even canoe "Way down upon the Suwannee River..." This is one of those parks you have to stay... More

This is a great state park. The Stephen Foster museum is wonderful with beautiful intricate dioramas from some of his songs along with the scenic carillon tower as well. The craft village is so neat with knowledgeable volunteers and the gift shop is full of neat gifts. The Suwanee river is so serene and peaceful. We shall return to this... More

Beautiful state park. The huge oaks are lovely . The pianos and antiques on display are amazing . If you visit during Christmas you will be blown away by the beautiful light display, the model trains and the fun family friendly atmosphere. Great place to catch some folk music as well. Fun spot to spend the day or evening.

I read about this in the AAA book and it was on the path of our destination so we stopped. We are so happy we did. The grounds are impeccable, the history is beautiful and so unexpected to find so much in this area. The craft area is accessible and something to appreciate.

Stephen Foster is great way to show kids how things were done in times past. They have volunteers to show and tell about some of the items that were used before all of the modern-day conveniences.

My wife and I and our dogs loved the park. Almost each site gave you the feeling you were almost alone In the woods. Each had a fire pit, grill and picnic table. Water and Elec only but dump site wasn't far. The bath houses were close to most sites and very clean. The Center was very informative and well... More

Love the cabins in the State Park. Enjoy the gift shop and the grounds especially in the Spring. Love the peace & quiet except for the voices of nature. So refreshing to my very soul. Love this place.

They hold the folk festival here every year on the Friday, Saturday & Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. We went on Saturday for the first time this year and had a great time. The Park has lots of shade and the festival is laid out well with various stages, tents & pavilions featuring all kinds of music - fiddle, banjo,... More

This is the second time I have been there in the last 20 years and it is still such a beautiful place to visit. I used to swim in the old spring house as a young boy 8 or 9 years old back in the late forties and early 50's. The museum was lovely and so informative. Thank you, jim... More
